      Description

      Due to FACT-688, facter3 reports the lsbmajdistrelease fact as 18.04, but Facter 4 only reports 18:

      # puppet facts diff
      {"hypervisors.vmware.version":{"new_value":"ESXi 6.7","old_value":""},"lsbmajdistrelease":{"new_value":"18","old_value":"18.04"}}
      

      Facter 4 should retain compatibility with 3.x
